Jansen said when the HST came into effect the new tax was absorbed in the original rate of $2 an hour. The new pricing now puts the HST on top of the parking fees for hourly and daily parking, to bring the year-round hourly rate after June 1 in the day skier lots to $2.25.

Winter overnight parking lot closures will be maintained so crews can clear snow between 3 and 6 a.m.

Village business owners, employees and volunteers who qualify will be able to purchase passes as of May 16 at the municipal hall.

Pricing and other parking strategy details are available at www.piquenewsmagazine.com.
